Ritherdon National Highways Roadside Electrical Cabinet (NHREC)

The Ritherdon National Highways Roadside Electrical Cabinet (NHREC) previously known as the NH RB Cabinet follows closely on the design of the traditional range of Ritherdon RB Cabinets.

The NHREC Cabinet meets all the requirements detailed in National Highways specification MCE 2650.

The Roadside Electrical Cabinet is intended to house electrical/electronic equipment installed on the Strategic Road Network (SRN). The NHREC cabinet is a basic cabinet, but with IP56 rating and secure locking systems, with a three-point locking mechanism as standard.

A cost-effective alternative when a complex cabinet is not necessary (like a Type 600 Cabinet or Type 640 Cabinet or formerly Type 600C).
